It appears to be a burnt hotdog. Recycling to the extreme! Kudos!

I use a new tube and zipties. (Didn't have any old ones kicking around.)

Hey mx! You use lizard SKINS? I use the whole dang LIZARD. Better effect. Plus his squealing from the tight zip ties covers up that "hot rotor" sound when braking on long descents......


And I'm going to pretend I didn't see Hank's protector.....
